    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    anyone been informed they are going to 70 yet?

    I know some centers have virtually everyone out of hours and are supposed to deliver tomorrow.

    I just don’t know what else they can do in these places already running saturdays.

    I have 1.5 hrs left and I’m scheduled in tomorrow. I have a funny feeling 70 hrs will be allowed all of a sudden starting tomorrow..

    I was told today by my on-road sup that the 70 hour request was denied. They are scrambling at my center trying to figure Saturday out now. They assumed approval and now their plans are screwed..

    It’s UPS , they probably asked for approval last night just like we get ready for peak thanksgiving weekend.

    It is coming. I clicked out with 24 mins to spare. 30% of my center did not have 60 rule issue.

    I was told that Fed-Ex 70 hr request was rejected. Perhaps UPS was too. Is it approved by each state's DOT or is the approval nation wide?

    I know they were planning on working us Saturday, we had thousands of stops brought back tonight and no one allowed over 60 hours.

    We have had the 70 hr rule invoked the last 2 years here, but not so far not this year.

    Different all over. I only had like 6-7 hours of OT this week. Guys an hour and a half from me are barely getting 40. Guys 3.5 hours from me don’t have any hours left.

    Strange that DOT would approve it last year and not this year

    Wrong. Express has always operated under the 8/70 rule. There is nothing for the DOT to approve.
